March Madness Betting Preview 2021The 2021 March Madness tournament is going to be different than anything we’ve seen.

After having to cancel the 2020 March Madness tournament, the NCAA has been doing everything in their ability to ensure that this year’s tournament can be played safely.

In January, it was announced that the NCAA tournament would be hosted exclusively in Indiana.

Best March Madness Betting Sites

Looking for a safe US-friendly sportsbook to bet on some March Madness next month?

Here are the two March Madness bookies we recommend:

Top Contenders to Win March Madness This Year

Two teams have stood out from the rest of the top-ranked teams in college basketball.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs (20-0 / 11-0 in WCC) and Baylor Bears (17-0 / 9-0 in Big 12) are the top teams in the nation and remain undefeated with less than a month to go before March Madness starts.

Gonzaga are favored to win the big dance at +275 odds, while Baylor are priced at +300 odds.

Are either team worth betting?

While these two teams are undefeated, anything can happen in Indianapolis this year. There may be teams forced into elimination if they end up testing positive for COVID-19 during the tournament.

There’s a lot of uncertainty, so betting any team at 3/1 odds or less isn’t recommended.

2021 March Madness Futures Picks

Here are the two teams I’m jumping on because they offer great value heading into the tourney.

Can you believe the Buckeyes (17-4 11-4 in Big Ten)) are ranked #4 in the nation?

OSU have been a big surprise this season. They’re on a six-game win streak with victories against Wisconsin (#10) and Iowa (#8). Ohio State are now 5-1 against ranked opponents this season.

E.J. Liddell leads the team in scoring (15.1 PPG) and rebounding (6.7 RPG).

OSU rank #8 in offensive efficiency and they’re scoring 77.5 PPG (45th). The offense hasn’t been a problem, but they’ll need to tighten up defensively to win the big dance (68.0 PPG – 106th).

Duane Washington Jr. (14.6 PPG) and Justice Sueing (10.7 PPG) are the only other two players on the team averaging double-digits in PPG. However, that doesn’t mean OSU lack depth,

Players like Justin Ahrens (46/98 on three-pointers) can heat up quickly and steal a game.

OSU have been playing tough competition since conference play started as well. There are five teams ranked in the top 25 in the Big Ten, so the Buckeyes are battle tested.

With upcoming games against Michigan and Illinois, watch the Buckeyes closely leading up to the tournament. If they manage to win both of these games, they’ll see their futures odds drop further.

Virginia (15-3 / 11-1 in ACC) are ranked #7 in the nation and are first place in the ACC.

The Cavaliers are not getting enough respect. They’re the 11th priced team at Bovada to win the big dance this year. Here are the main reasons I’ll be betting on Virginia to win March Madness.

Virginia only allow 58.8 PPG (4th) and they’re one of the best defensive teams in the nation. They also play at a slow pace, which can end up frustrating many of their opponents.

They only score 69.9 PPG (196th), but they rank #7 in offensive efficiency. This illustrates why you need to dig deeper into the statistics and not just look at how many points a team is scoring.

The Cavaliers also can shoot the deep ball well. They rank #6 in 3-point shooting percentage (39.9%).

Sam Hauser leads the team in points (15.1 PPG) and rebounds (7.1 RPG). Jay Huff is averaging 13.4 PPG and he leads the team in blocks (2.4 BPG). Trey Murphy III (11.5 PPG) ranks 3rd on the team in PPG.

We’ll be continuing our March Madness coverage this next month, so keep checking back regularly.
